Oh thank you! I can't wait to give this a go!


pretty, pretty, pretty!


so excited to do this. Looking at your gallery in your tutorial, I noticed the ric-rac on one of the ruffles of your skirts. Love that detail! I have so many fabric combinations that I am dying to try, i just hope I can get my two year old to do a fashion show when I am done...


Thanks for your time! You did a wonderful job, and I'm looking forward to trying one myself. Love your fabric and the ric rac detail!

Your ruffle skirts are so adorable and how generous of you to supply the tutorial. Thank you!

AAAHHHH!!! Thank you Alissa!! I forgot to say this was for my daughter who is a size 5 or 6. Gonna edit the tutorial now. Thank you so much for catching that!


Thank you so much for this great tutorial! It's so easy to follow and is such a great, easy project! I can't wait to try it!


Have you tried stitching with a double needle and then pull the bobbin thread to gather your fabric? It is easier and stronger,less likely to have the threads break. The skirts are darling.


thank-you and can't wait to try this out!!!


How thank you so much! I love these skirts! I have a niece that they would look adorable on. I just might have to make one in my size too :)

You ROCK for putting such a nice tutorial together to share with us!

OMG! Thank you!!! My 4 year old will loooove this skirt. I'm going to get started right away...maybe I should wait until the morning!


Your skirts are adorable. I wish I had girls to make them for... I may just make one anyway. Thank you for an excellent tutorial. x
